problem bill of rights. george mason was one of the members of the virginia delegation. he had written the delegation state of rights for virginia in 1776 and it actually was a few months before jefferson wrote the declaration of independence and jefferson realized for inspiration and for substance on the declaration of rights and the state of virginia, and when the convention was over mason who was a member of the virginia delegation wouldn't sign the constitution. washington was infuriated. but this indicated a real problem because the constitution goes into force with the nine states ratified if you didn't have a virginia or you didn't have new york it wouldn't work. and so came about one of the great in a formal agreements in american legal history. there was an agreement on an informal agreement that if the constitution were ratified as written by the 17 eda seven convention that there would be a bill of rights. and statesman -- and there were states and in those days kept their word. and so we had a bill of right

mason reid becomes the longest-serving member of congress in the history of the state of nevada. senator reid was elected to the u.s. house of representatives the same year that i was elected, in 1982, and became a member of the house in 1983. he became a member of the united states senate in 1987. he has served with great distinction in both houses of congress, serving his state of nevada. and today is the highest-ranking democrat in the united states senate serving as its majority leader. i would dare say, mr. president, that you and i will probably not really know anything about the town of searchlight, nevada, were it not for harry reid. harry reid has told us so many stories of his youth and his background in that tiny town and what brought him to this station in life today. i almost feel if there were a town or high school reunion i could attend it with harry and look around and recognize a lot of people there, because i've certainly heard stories about his youth and the people that had a dramatic impact on his life from the time that he was growing up in searchlight, neff. we know
